Yesterday, December 10. 2009, Congress did it again! They still have not gotten the message and they still are not paying attention to we the people! What have they done again???
This time stuffing 5,000 earmarks into the 2011 budget and giving fellow members of Congress less than 24 hours to review it...which comes out to only 17.2 seconds
of review time for each earmark. And mind you, many of the ones doing it were Republicans!!!
Oh, it's true alright - Not one Republican Incumbent voted in favor of passing the budget
, but MOST of them still stuffed in earmarks.Why would they do that? Because they knew that the Democrats would pass the budget anyway, even if many Republicans did not vote for it. They knew they are outnumbered and the measure would easily pass anyawy. So they can now head home and trumpet how they "voted against the budget" but they will not mention how they stuffed in earmarks prior to the vote knowing they would get them anyway even if they themselves dod not vote for the budget to pass.
THAT IS EXCEPT for Congressman Jason Chaffetz at least who was on Neil Cavuto's show yesterday...Congressman Jason Chaffetz, who taught candidates how to win elections without relying on money or begging for fair media coversage.
Take a look at Jason's 3 minute interview on Neil Cavuto's show, where Cavuto pointed out that they verified that Chaffetz asked for no pork and was a man of his word: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lf5nrgnjoRY&feature=channel
THEN check out the last 45 seconds of Cavuto's show where he asks America to think about what Chaffetz is doing and what it would be like if we had 434 more Congressmen like him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0T77Yui5ZK4&feature=channel
This just might be a great time to send these links along to your friends, neighbors, and associates...Let them know you hope they too will find, vett, endorse, and elect 434 more Congressman just like Jason Chaffetz...and invite them to join you and to lend a hand.
I can't wait for January. We have 100's of new candidates getting campaigns under way and we'll start our election efforts in earnest all over the country. Pay close attention to the candidates because the day of the incumbant politician who returns to Washington over and over again for decades is about to come to an end. People like you and me are fed up and very angry at how the Democrat controlled government has treated the American people. But rest assured, this is not just about politics along party lines. There are plenty of Republicans in Washington who need to be fired as well. Party line is irrelavent. What matters most is what they stand for. If you are like me, I am just as likely to vote for a Democrat if he is going to be the best choice. I will not vote for a Republican if he just doesn't get it. And believe me, there is no shortage of people in Washington who just don't get it. We have tried beating them over the head, we have tried emails, faxes, phone calls letter writing campaigns and even marching on Washington. And still they don't get it. So we hope they finally get it when they are sitting on the plane heading home unemployed after the 2010 election.
What the election in 2010 is going to be about is not what party they belong to or who has been there the longest or who has the best hair do. It will be about real people who are just like us and understand what it is like out here in the real world for us. It is about people who relaize they work for us and not for the Washington insiders with their elite friends and special interest groups. Lets work hard next year to make sure a lot more good people like Jason Chaffetz are sent to Washington. He gets it!
